Washington, September 29 (RHC)-- Cuba was elected to the Executive Committee of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) for a three-year term, with the support of all member states except the United States.

Suriname and Brazil were also elected to that committee.

The United States was once again isolated in its campaign of aggressions and attempts to discredit Cuba.

We appreciate the kind invitation conveyed by the People’s Republic of China to exchange on the best experience achieved in coping with the COVID-19 pandemic and the prospects for cooperation during the recovery stage. We would like to commend the work carried out by the Mexican Pro Tempore Presidency of CELAC.
